Please help SME

The LCD Screen of my Cannon Elph SD 200, all of a sudden,  will not light up. It will illuminate to review pictures or to take movies, but not to take pictures.
Can you help, your assistnce would be greatly appreciated. I can not find the solution in my manual. I went into the menu to try to resolve, but could not.

Thank you and have a wonderful day,

Rita Witherly

Still under warranty? We sent our camera back for repairs after we had similar issues and the Canon support was fabulous. We could take movies but not stills (pictures).  Call for a Return Authorization number first. We had our camera back in a week or so.

Think that you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

The image is getting blurred


The camera may have moved when the picture was taken. Try steadily squeezing the button intead of a quick press.

2.Try using a tripod, this could fix the blurred images.

3. faster shutter speed will be needed if you need to hold the camera, and cannot use a tripod.

4. Main reason for the lines could be that the subject is to bright.
A vertical bar of light(red, purple) appears on the LCD monitor/ in the viewfinder This is a normal occurrence in devices containing CCDs (Digital Cameras) and does not mean a malfunction. (This red bar of light will not be recorded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded when shooting

Solution to the last point would be to try and switch of the flash if it is in use. Turn the ISO setting (50, 100, 200) to a lower one as well.

Hope that helps.
